Priorities

Dr. Grumpy: "How did this start?"

Mr. Walton: "We were in line at Walmart, returning a toaster. It was a real POS, know what I mean, Doc? It burned everything. Anyway, Ma began telling me that her left arm and leg were weak, and so I helped hold her up. After we returned the toaster I carried her out to the truck, and drove her to the hospital."

Dr. Grumpy: "Okay, what time would you say this all started?"

Mr. Walton: "We were in line about another 20 minutes after she first said something."

Dr. Grumpy: "Why didn't you bring her in or call 911 right away?"

Mr. Walton: "We'd already been waiting for 20 minutes and I didn't want to go back."

Well, those return lines at Walmart are a pain in the neck.

It is all about timing. If you go to Walmart before 9 you have the entire store to yourself, as their customers don't get up until about 11 AM.

Let the firestorm begin.

LOL, Packer. I agree. I work rotating shifts and I will go after a 12 hour night shift at 7:30 a.m. even though it means I have to come home and carry everything in alone. It is better than dealing with "The People of Walmart."

how many brain cells died for the sake of that toaster? millions or billions?

I'd like to think that my wife would call the paramedics with a cell phone and then go to the hospital to see how I was doing after finishing the return if she were in that situation.

I'd do the same for her. ;}

Hey, waiting really wasn't a problem. If she passed out or something, they could have just plugged the toaster in, stuck her hands in it and "zapped" her back.

Come on folks, this isn't rocket science. It's artisanal medicine!
